This refrigerator is ideal for single/two person household. I had the exact model purchased in July of 1998 at a cost $160.00 higher from a local appliance dealer in Elmhurst than the one purchased from ABT. Kinda wish I purchased the original frig from ABT then. I junked the old one without calling for service. I applied the service call ($125.00-175.00) towards the new unit, afterall, its eleven years old and what else is going to go. The improvements are slight but noticeable. Two separate bins vice one on my original unit plus there is a clear window on shelve above to see the contents of the bins without opening them. The handle is easier to grab being that it is round at the top. It now has a separate butter-keeper that I did not have before. There is a "full" shelf in the freezer from one side to the other vice a half shelf that kept falling if overloaded. The only complaint that I have with the new unit verses the old is that it appears that the freezer is smaller. The vents drawing the cold air down to the refrigerator section are pointed towards the door. The old unit was minus the vents on the floor. Apparently,they were on the top and less efficient.Lastly, I swear by Whirlpool as I have three other major appliances bearing their name and I couldn't be happier. Very reliable.

I am frustrated with the lower door gasket (freezer is on top). The top end corner area of door doesn't close all the way, letting out the cold air. So, for the past weeks I've tried everything such as: applying a little vasoline to help with the seal, putting scotch tape over area where air is coming out, taping the door shut tight, even putting little strips of leather inside the door gasket lip to prop it outward so as to grip onto the refrigerator better. At first I followed the trouble shooting suggestions in the product direction booklet. All have worked (separately or in combo) temporarily to some degree, but at the end of the day (or in a couple hours) the gasket loosens again and cold air escapes. It's now my daily routine to tape the door 3-4 times a day. Whirlpool was recommended to me by a relative who sells refrigerators at a major dept store, and I'm disappointed. Also at some point when I first got the fridge, it froze my food in the lower compartment. But now that doesn't happen, so it may have remedied itself. (or maybe the gasket leak keeps it from freezing). The upper freezer door gasket works great, and I'm very happy about that. For quality, overall all it is fair to average. I almost put in a poor rating due to the ongoing frustrating gasket issue on lower door, but the rest of the fridge (so far) seems okay.

Love my new refrigerator
from markleton, Pa
Comments about Whirlpool Bisque Top Freezer Refrigerator:
I bought this new refrigerator a few months ago and can't believe how much more room there is. I love the new space on the door for gallon size containers and the storage for cans of soda.
from Buffalo, NY, United States
I bought this for an extra refrigerator because the one I had was very old and not energy efficient. I love this refrigerator. It has so many great features and runs so quiet. I love my whirlpool products!
Too loud and poor temp control
By Still looking
from Portland, OR, United States
We've owned a similar Whirlpool for 18 years without a problem but the new one was more then twice as loud. We could hear the refrigerator running from our living room even with the tv, air conditioner and fan running. I could even hear it from my bedroom at night. Middle door shelf was too small to hold any condiments. Ice cream was soft so bought a thermometer to check the temperature. The refrigerator was in the freezing temps and the freezer was 15 degrees too warm. Unit only has one control for both compartments so ended up freezing food in the refrigerator in an attempt to get the freezer cold enough. Turned down the temp and the freezer wasn't safe to use. Returned for refund

Don't buy unless you have another freezer
from Wooster, OH, United States
There aren't separate controls for the refrigerator and freezer. Freezer won't keep ice cream cold enough unless you turn control way up but if you do, stuff in fridge freezes.
